Trip Overview

The Himalaya Helicopter Tour is one of Nepal’s most popular and quickest excursions. The original intention of Nepal Travel Now in launching this trip was to provide the destination to people who are differently abled or have limits due to age or time constraints, but since this tour has become increasingly popular, it is now offered to anybody who is interested.

We feel that the view from a Himalaya helicopter trip improves as one ascends higher! Taking this tour to the Everest base camp, the world’s highest mountain, would provide one of the best views in the world, but in order to reach an altitude of 5000+ meters, we must descend from an even higher altitude, and the kind of undeniable view you get is unlike anything even an experienced trekker has seen. Similarly, One will never forget this experience of the Himalaya Helicopter Tour.

The moment we take off in our helicopter from the airport, we are surrounded by lush green hills, and in no time we are discovering ravines, lush green knolls with seasonal flora that changes color with the blossom, tributaries, and streams that push their way through the hills and mountains, mountains shooting to the strikingly blue sky, and the plateau to the north, and none other than a hawk-eye view of the entire creation of Nature is irreplaceable.

Spend some time exploring the base camp once you arrive. After that, you’ll travel to the Everest View Hotel for breakfast and to mingle with the locals. It will be difficult to return to Kathmandu, but we must. You will land at the Kathmandu airport and be driven to the hotel after enjoying the views for the last time from the Heli.

Similarly, we work with experienced pilots and crew members who have flown in the Himalayas for many years.
